- 2 servings
- 450 grams salmon filets, skinless
- 120 grams of cornflour
- 200 grams panko breadcrumbs
- 2 whole eggs
- 600 grams of sweet potato
- Vegetable oil for shallow frying

- 3 cornichon, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon capers, finely chopped
- 2 sprigs of parsley, finely chopped

- Peel your sweet potato and chop into thin, 8cm long batons. Place in a pot with salted cold water and bring to a boil. Drain in a colander. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Season with salt.
- Slice your salmon into fingers. Make an egg wash by mixing the yolks with one tablespoon of water. Season the cornflour with salt.
